29 October 2013, 08:39Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - The eagerly-awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the latest member in the successful Galaxy Note family, is now available in Nigeria.

This follows the launch at an elaborate function at the Intercontinental Hotel in Victoria Island in Lagos on Monday evening.

Samsung Electronics also unveiled the Galaxy Gear, a wrist-worn device that connects to the Note 3 for what the company describes as “an even more outstanding mobile experience.”

According to Brovo Kim, Managing Director, Samsung Electronics West Africa, the Galaxy Note 3 is positioned to meet the demands of consumers desirous of larger screens and a more user-friendly display.

“In 2011, we introduced the original Galaxy Note and launched a whole new smart device category. The undeniable success of the Galaxy Note category strengthened our conviction that consumers want higher quality features on their devices and they want those new features to positively impact their quality of life. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a powerful, original approach that enables its users to tell the stories of their lives through dynamic and seamless expressions of their passions across work, play and life experiences,” he said.

Kim reiterated Samsung’s commitment to fulfilling its brand promise of inspiring the world and creating the future through its commitment to bringing new and meaningful innovations to the doorstep of consumers.

Emmanouil Revmatas, Director, Hand Held Products for Samsung Electronics West Africa, described the Galaxy Note 3 as a testament to Samsung’s innovation leadership in the smartphones market and its commitment to developing the best products to meet the ever-changing needs of its consumers.

“Once again we have proven our commitment to offering state-of-the-art technology by introducing the Galaxy Note 3, which takes mobile device performance, screen and content to a whole new level. A great number of innovations were injected into the product towards delivering new value to enhance the lives of our consumers and also provide them with the ultimate communication experience. Today, we are excited to present Nigerians with the world’s most powerful mobile device,” he said.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the company’s thinnest and lightest device in the Note category yet. It features a screen larger than that of its predecessor, the Galaxy Note II while maintaining the same width as the previous Galaxy Note version and delivering on a larger, better viewing and multi-tasking experience.

The device is equipped with a 13 megapixel camera that features Samsung’s proprietary Smart Stabilization which enables high performance photography even in low light conditions with motion.
It also features the industry’s largest 3GB RAM for a faster and more powerful performance. The device’s S Pen features new innovations that reinvents and modernizes consumers’ note-taking experience by providing them with the ability to complete more tasks with just one click.

The new Galaxy Note 3 also comes with enhanced privacy and security protection options with Samsung KNOX.

This allows users to run and store security-sensitive applications and data in a protected folder inside the device.

In addition, the Galaxy Note 3 is equipped with an improved Find My Mobile feature that allows users to disable the phone, remotely track or erase the data from their lost or stolen device.
